Vice Prez Venkaiah should oppose Vizag steel plant privatisation: Minister Peddireddy
Panchayat Raj and Rural Development Minister Peddireddy Ramachandra Reddy on Friday urged Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu to oppose privatisation of the Visakhapatnam Steel Plant. Addressing a press meet, he recalled Venkaiah leading an agitation demanding a steel plant for Andhra Pradesh when Congress government was at the Centre. The minister faulted the TDP for making Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy responsible for privatisation of the steel plant. He stated that representatives of the South Korean steel giant POSCO made a courtesy call on Jagan Reddy being a CM of Andhra Pradesh.
